Peaceever TV Reported at UNHQ: On the 12th November the "UN-Ji A Street Art Exhibition to End Child Slavery" organized by the Permanent Mission of France to the United Nations was grand opened at United Nations Headquarters.

 

Dozens of pieces of art of all sizes give the  immerse you in the tragic reality of child slaves. Artists from all over the world will exhibit their new works, inspired by the true stories of working children.
 
Through this immersive and creative journey, visitors discover the dark daily life of these children, but also the hope for a better future, for these children and future generations, by delivering the message that "we can be the change we want to see in the world." They will also show how the power of art can be the key to real change.
 
These street art works highlight the fundamental rights of all the world’s children: the right to freedom, life and education.
 
Street Art for Mankind (streetartmankind.org) is an artistic movement created a few years ago to combat child labour. The exhibition #UNji at the UN is the second edition of this movement at the UN. It has been made possible by the support of the Permanent Missions of France, Argentina, Brazil, Canada and the UK to the UN, as well as the International Labor Organization and UNICEF.
 
Street Art for Mankind wishes to highlight the real stories of these children trapped in child slavery - but also how we, as consumers and actors in our society, can change our behaviour and do a better job in this environment to change things.
 
A few days before the exhibition, the artists will paint the stories of these children on the walls of Lower Manhattan in New York, which will mark the official launch of the "Murals for Freedom" around the world.
